New Research in Stained Glass Technique and Conservation

A seminar sponsored by the Worshipful Company of Glaziers, to be held in early March at the historic King’s Manor campus in the centre of York, will showcase recent research in stained glass technique and conservation. In particular, it will introduce the work of young scholars and conservators, presenting exciting new research that is as yet unpublished or still in development.

Speakers will include Keith Barley (Barley Studio, York), with the latest news on Lichfield Cathedral’s Herkenrode windows; Sarah Brown (University of York and the York Glaziers Trust), with recent observations on production practices in the workshop of John Thornton; Alison Gilchrist (Barley Studio, York), talking on severe paint loss from mid-nineteenth-century windows; Alexandra Jung (Derix Studios, Taunusstein), on the conservation of a window by Henry Gyles; Anne Kaiser (Rothkegel Glas GmbH, Würzburg) on new UV and IR protective glasses; Christine Schaffrath (The Rauch Consultancy, Koblenz), on the reconstruction of the war-damaged glazing of St Peter’s Naval Church, Kiel-Wik; and Anette Wahlgren (Osprey Heritage Management, York), on ‘Mr Peckitt’s Portrait’.

The application form is available here, and further details are available from Brittany Scowcroft (, 01904 433910, or +441904 433910 if you’re calling from outside the UK).
